'Little Britain' creator Matt Lucas wants to have gastric band surgery and is desperate to lose weight, after piling on the pounds whilst living in Los Angeles

Matt Lucas wants to get a gastric band.

The 'Little Britain' creator has been living in Los Angeles since 2011 and blames the lifestyle there for causing him to pile on the pounds.

He said: "I might get one of those gastric things. I don't know what to do. I am at a loss.

"I want to lose some weight. I eat cakes... you can have beef burgers for breakfast, lunch and dinner over in America."

The 40-year-old comedian previously lost two stone after his doctors gave him a stern warning about his health.

He also revealed that his dad had died of a heart attack at a young age, which prompted him to admit at the time that he needed to take more "responsibility".

Despite moving to the United States, Matt - who shares a flat with actress Rebel Wilson - would consider reuniting with David Walliams for a new series of their comedy show but admits he is worried it wouldn't be as funny as before.

Speaking on 'The Jonathan Ross Show' in an episode that airs tomorrow (21.02.15) night, he said: "I am not saying we would not do any more but there is a fear that it might not be as good.

"I have always admired ABBA who never got back together. We might get back but do something else.

"Would it be as funny? Vicky Pollard would have to be an adult with loads of children...

"My mum thought 'Little Britain' was a bit rude."
